Panel 1. Agatha’s mother sits comfortably in a three-seated a sofa. Agatha sits in a small chair in front of her mother, looking straight at her bloodied hands. The blood is dry and black. Between them, there is a glass table with a glass of water and a flower jar. The setting mirrors page 2, panel 1, the roles reversed.

AGATHA Is that blood?

Panel 2. Agatha gives a scornful glare at her defenseless mother.
AGATHA Mother, what have you done this time?
MICHAEL (OP) Honey.
Panel 3. Agatha’s mother turns to see Michael, the man that was lying next to Agatha when she called in page 13. He stands in the stairs, coming down to the living room.
MICHAEL Look at the state of her. I'll go get her some of your old clothes, OK?
AGATHA Yes, please.
